“It’s banter all the way. They do it to have fun. It’s at my expense, but it’s okay. Have a drink on my name. When you post those kind of things, so many people have a laugh,”
“Enjoy, it doesn’t affect me,”
“In cricket, if you are playing well and succeeding, people will be happy with you, and when you are not winning, you have to face some kicks and slaps,” he added.
